Blood Pressure Home > Labetalol and Hair Loss
Hair loss appears to be a rare complaint in people taking labetalol hydrochloride (sold under the brand name Trandate® and available as a generic). In clinical studies prior to the approval of labetalol, hair loss was reported rarely (by less than 1 percent of people). It is also reported rarely with other beta blockers. In many cases, this condition appears to be reversible.
If you experience hair loss while taking labetalol, talk with your healthcare provider. Depending on how severe the problem is, there are things that he or she may recommend. If hair loss becomes bothersome, or if your healthcare provider believes that the medicine is causing the problem, he or she may recommend trying another blood pressure medicine.
